A Long, Fulfilling Journey: Travelling the Silk Road of Ethics with Hans Martin Sass


  • Ilhan Ilkilic


As academics, we acquire various elements of knowledge and information from books and scholarly journals. These ingredients are the building blocks for our own intellectual horizon and our system of thought. However, the specific functions and roles of these building blocks are not mainly determined by the literature we consume. Rather, what is crucial is the role of the tutor or teacher walking alongside the budding scholar. This pedagogical role has hardly changed even in the era of the internet and in the face of the breathtaking speed of knowledge production. Its importance is particularly prominent in the humanities, encompassing methodological, substantive, and scientific aspects. Three levels of influence can be traced back to the work of Hans Martin Sass and its impact.
